Primitive Quendian begat Common Eldarin. Common Eldarin begat Common Lindarin. Common Lindarin begat Old Sindarin. Old Sindarin begat (Classical) Sindarin. Helge writes, "Old Sindarin preserves the general sound of archaic Elvish much better than Sindarin does. There are quite a few cases of Old Sindarin words being identical to Quenya words."
